The prostate gland is present in males and is responsible for producing fluid that helps the sperm to travel during the ejaculation process. The prostate gland surrounds the urethra, a tube-like structure that helps pass urine from the body. When a man urinates, the bladder squeezes out the urine through the urethra.
An enlarged prostate is a medical condition in which the gland becomes bigger in size compared to the normal structure. This condition affects all men once they get older. The enlarged prostate condition is medically known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), and it is not a type of cancer. BPH is the most common disorder of the prostate gland. It most commonly affects males between the ages of 40 and 75. Up to 90% of men over age 80 suffer from it.
What factors cause the enlargement of the prostate gland?
The factor that causes enlargement of the prostate gland-
The prostate gland is small when men are young, and as one age, it grows and grows. The gland is wrapped around the urethra, so when the prostate size increases, it squeezes or pinch the urethra and makes it difficult for men to urinate. The affected individual urinates only dribbles like a leaky faucet, drip, and sometimes one is not able to completely empty their bladder, and they feel the urge to use the bathroom, even in the middle of the night.
This condition's exact cause is unknown, but this is a normal process that develops as men get older.
- Changes in male sex hormone levels can cause BPH.
- Increasing age also increases the risk of getting an enlarged prostate.
- As men age, the amount of active testosterone level in the blood decreases, and this causes a higher level of estrogen. Researchers suggest a high level of estrogen also causes the prostate cells to grow.
What are the symptoms of enlarged prostate gland or BPH?
- Urinary incontinence
- Pain in the lower body area
- Straining to urinate
- Weak urine flow
- Dribbling at the end of urination
- Not able to empty the bladder completely
- Painful urination
- Blood in urine
- Slow start of urinary stream
- Always feel a sudden urge to urinate.
Medical test performed to diagnose the enlarged prostate condition-
The doctor accesses the patient's body health and also performs a physical examination of the gland. The patient medical history and current medications are also checked.
- Blood test
- Urine glow test
- Post void residual test
- Infection test-Urinalysis
- Urine culture test
- PSA blood test
- Creatinine test
- Digital rectal examination
The symptoms and other medical conditions are also checked before providing the treatment.
Possible complications caused by enlarged prostate gland-
Total blockage of urine-One is no longer able to pass urine. This condition is called urinary retention, and it is very uncomfortable. A catheter is inserted to drain the urine from the bladder to ease the patient.
Infection-In some cases, the balder is not emptied completely, and some urine remains in the bladder. This is termed chronic retention, and it can cause urine infections to incontinence.
Treatment for an enlarged prostate gland condition or BPH
- Certain medications are given to relax the muscles of the bladder and prostate. This helps the urine to pass easily.
- Other medications are provided that help lower the level of hormones produced by the prostate gland. The drugs reduce prostate gland size, increase the flow of urine, and decrease the symptoms caused by BPH.
- Antibiotics are given to treat inflammation of the prostate gland.
Surgery for enlarged prostate gland
The surgery is performed when one suffers from problems like incontinence, recurrent urinary tract infections, bladder stones, urinary retention, and blood in the urine.
Types of surgical procedure
Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)-This is the most common and proven treatment to cure BPH. This procedure involves removing the prostate gland piece by piece by inserting a scope through the penis.
Simple prostatectomy- In this procedure, the inside part of the prostate gland is removed by making an incision in the lower belly area. This procedure is performed in the case of a very large prostate gland.
Laser-The treatment uses lasers and heat to damage the prostate issue.
Transurethral incision of the prostate (TUIP)- In this procedure, the surgeon makes a few small incisions in the prostate gland that help to widen the urethra.
Catheterization-In this process, a tube called a catheter is placed in the bladder to drain urine. These are placed through the urethra by making a small puncture in the bladder above the pubic area. This option is helpful, but the benefits are temporary. Side effects of using catheters may be an infection, and it is not considered a long-term treatment. Good candidates for catheters are males waiting for the medicine to work or waiting for an operation.
Dietary and lifestyle changes are also recommended that may help with symptoms and signs. This include
- Limit the consumption of alcohol and caffeine consumption.
- Decrease fluid intake about 2-3 hours before bedtime.
- Go to the bathroom before sleep.
- Minimize long trips when the restroom is readily available.
- Constipation can aggravate the concern (eat a fiber-rich diet to prevent constipation).
If BPH condition is not treated, it can cause the following problems-
- Kidney damage
- Blood in the urine
- Urinary stones
- Notable to urinateUrinary tract infections
